My second case arrived yesterday.  I didn't bother with pics for cup position because many had fallen over, and I couldn't be sure of where they started out.  But, I completed my common mini set and got 23 different stickers (15 I needed), as well as a Pupsi rare and a 6-Urp rare.  No really rare this time  :sad:

6-Urp was in a cup in the upper level with Argh as the topper, and Pupsi was in the lower level, with Breadcrust Hash as the topper.

I just finished opening my case that I bought from the same source as you did, Pat.  Interestingly, I got the exact same thing you did in terms of rares (6urp out of a cup with Argh showing and Pupsi from a cup with Breadcrust showing and no "really rares" in the case).  Makes me think, once again, there may be "set" cases with little if any derivation.  I haven't collated to see how many different minis and stickers I got, but the distribution seems pretty good.  About the only other interesting thing to note is that I got two Dull stickers out of the same cup (the one with Pupsi in it) which I found to be more than coincidental and probably evidence that there are indeed cases that are exactly the same out there.

Im hoping i get a different case so I’ll have something to trade. Not much fun trading if we all get exactly the same minis. I suppose the factory/shipper puts the cups in randomly. Although if robots package the minis, it is possible cases have the exact sane minis in them….Maybe if cases are going to retail stores fir individual sales, identical cases dont matter…

The 24 count boxes usually have 3 different mixes. 2 boxes of each mix in each 6 box master case.
2 Rare Chases per 24 count box and 1 Really Rare Chase in every other 24 count box.

So you are saying my chances if getting Mt Goo AND Pupsi in one case are slim to none? Why can’t they list the odds? I collected Ad Icons mini figures from Funko and every individual blind box showed Count Chokula and Bobs Big Boy as 1:6, Jolly Green Giant as 1:24…etc….a much better way of doing it…..

So far one box has STD and 6 Urp and another has 6 Urp and Pupsi.  Mtn Goo has not been seen yet. It may be in the third assortment or may be held back
for another wave.

I reported earlier (about 3 pages back in this thread  :] ) that I pulled Mountain Goo and Pupsi in the case I received.

No, Faust, these folks are all talking about minis from whole cases they pre-ordered via mail order….No one has seen any series 3 in any retail stores yet…

Went to a couple Targets and a Walmart yesterday and today.  As expected, found no series 3 but did learn a couple things.

At a Walmart near my house that I don't recall ever having any series 1 or 2, I did find a few 6-packs of series 2 with some cups showing Minute Mud and Ebayer.  The checkouts at this store seem to have been totally overhauled in the last month or so.  I'm assuming the series 2 cups have arrived within the last month.  Even though there were very few traditional checkout lines, the 6-packs were in the area where the traditional checkout lanes had been pulled.  Perhaps that is where we'll find series 3 when it shows up.

Today I ran into the Excel guy at my local Target.  While he wasn't overly helpful, I was able to ask him enough questions to, well, learn very little.  He said he knew nothing about any new Wacky Minis coming.  He said he stocked all the Targets in my area, usually (always?) on Fridays, so it seems that may be the day to hit the ones near me at least.

Besides The Target and W.M. Stores, I also suggest checking out the 5 Below for anyone that has those stores in their area. The one nearby me still has some Ser 2 containers.

Why do they have to lie? Or do they not control their own supply chain? They had sent me an email back in early December that these would hit stores around Dec 15…. So…February 15 is “around December 15?”

I'm guessing it's more cluelessness than lying in that they would seem to want to tell their customers when and where they could buy these.  What would be their motivation to lie?  But perhaps cluelessness, because they don't control the supply chain or when Target and Walmart put these out, is a more accurate guess as to their seeming inability to correctly tell us when and where to buy these.  At any rate, it will certainly be interesting to see when and where we start to find these at retail.

I would think something along the lines of “thank you for your interest in our upcoming series 3 minis. In these times, We are experiencing some issues with our supply chain, but hope to get them to retail stores soon.” Would gave been more appropriate…and honest…..

I just got a notification from Toy Wiz that my case has shipped. Will be here on Tuesday the 15th. Still have yet to see them in a retail store.

I did pull a Martian Hats mini.  As for lots of doubles, I thought this wasn't so bad, since I got 62 different out of 72 commons, and 3 different rares out of 10.  I've already made a trade for 4 of the commons I didn't pull, and am sure there will be more trades forthcoming.

I ordered one case from Toy Wiz while I wait for my 2 cases to arrive from Rylee’s attic. I pulled all 72 commons, 2 rares and 1 really rare from the case. The rares were red sparkle 6-urp and red sparkle STD. The really rare was black top Fink. The top mini for the 6-urp  was Ducko-cement , Choke king was on top for STD, and Irish ring was on top for Black Fink (which had a 2nd Irish ring in it as well.) The 6-urp was on the top level second row, second from the left, STD was on top level third row third from the left, and Fink was on the bottom level first row fourth from the left. I hope this info helps you out. I also got 22 different stickers.
I should add my case from Toy Wiz shipped out on Wednesday and I got it on Thursday ( I live in driving distance from them).

So you did pull an Ivy soap, I take it?
That one hadn’t appeared in the first few cases opened, IIRC.

I have only opened one cup from the case I just got and there was an Ivy Soap in there.
Is that a tough titles? Probably way to early to tell.

Thanks for that info!  I just ordered a second case from Deborah/Rylee's Attic.  It should arrive Monday.  She sent me a pic of the top row and it's different than the case i got from her a couple weeks ago, so I'm hoping for some different rares.  It may or may not be the same assortment as the case you've described (The Ducko lines up but the Choke King doesn't).  I am curious to learn if there are only a few set case arrangements or if things will be more random this time.

For what it's worth, I've been to a few Targets and a Walmart this week and, not surprisingly, found no series 3.

Looking at Pats photos of the case she opened…the minis showing in the top of my cups is extremely similar….maybe identical…
